One other thing...I have no idea if the EB's ever came with a rear swaybar stock.But if they did,You should find one and try that out.Either that or adapt a swaybar from a BII,ranger,or explorer.Would probably make a big difference in the trailers handleing.

Can we get some Pics of how its current suspension looks & a pic to show about how the wieght is distributed?

& one last queston.. how much does it wieght when loaded.

this is underway right now. actually adding another set of shocks. edit-->first ones are so long that THE only way it would work is to "Long Travel" them. got some others now that I can mount near vertical further out near the wheel. I'll see how it goes.

Well, I unloaded it so I could get the frame suspended to add some leaves back in. I can get a current shot tommorrow as I'm working on it in the AM.
weight distribution will end up being like 65% forward of axle and 35% rear- Estimated. May also extend the hitch out a few more inches. not sure yet...I'm at about 1/3 the total distance from hitch to axle right now.

Not sure but it will be under 2500#s I suspect. even if I add my 460 to the front of the bed. more likely it will tip the scale around 1500-1800#'s

with nothing done other than adding one leaf back per side...its alot stiffer and isnt as easily rocked. I have photos but have yet to upload for ya Cam. I got an idea now for building outboard shock mounts...just gonna take some time tonight.

think I also got the weight distribution figured out fairly well too. should be ready to re test run by the weekend.


anyone local so cal have any of their stock TTB radius arm shock mounts they would part with? I could use even one if you have it. save me some fab time.

Whats the red box? A Tool box?

& have you corrected your handling issues?

Looking forward to a pic of it behind the EB.

Yes. It tows great. hit all sorts of bumps, serving to try to make it "wave", got speed. Couldn't have asked for better handling....other than having it happen the first time.

towed great all the way to my driveway in ND---where the 'Burbs power steering hose let go and made a mess in the street while backing it into the driveway. what a way to make a great impression on the new neighbors.

Even this project sits in a garage now....with me stealing parts from it to make the uncut rig useable.
Took the red box off and sorta installed the aluminum box off my Haul rig in its place.
I will be installing a small generator up front as well for portable power. I have it-new still in the box from awhile ago.

Was used as a storage container mostly since moving it back here, but I've slowly been using the parts out of the back over the last year.
